Comedy Central Removes iPhone 4g Joke From Online Futurama Episode

Sharp eyed (eared?) Roberto Baldwin of MacLife.com caught a bizarre discrepancy between the on-air showing of this week’s episode of Futurama, and the one that was posted online afterward: the audio of the final joke of the show was completely removed.

The last joke was the only one in the show that was specifically about… uh.  Well, I guess it’s kind of a punchline, so we’ll talk about it after the jump.

It was specifically about the iPhone 4g, and not the iPhone, or Apple in general.  However, almost the entire show lampooned Apple (although Twitter also took it’s fair share of knocks).  It’s kind of puzzling that Comedy Central would feel it had to remove this joke, in the presence of all the others.

Here’s the original clip:

And here’s the online version:
